News We Love: Daleks Give a Who Fan a Funeral Send Off

A Dalek provided a fitting send off at the funeral of a life long sci-fi fan, by crashing the ceremony and playing the Doctor Who theme before leading mourners out of a crematorium.

Shoshanna Manch, who passed away from ovarian cancer on February 4 of this year, was a Whovian and left specific instructions that mourners attending her funeral were to enjoy themselves at the celebraiton of her life. It was Ms. Manch’s sister who struck on the idea of getting a Dalek to pay tribute to Shoshanna, and after some online hunting located a local performer calling himself Derek The Dalek to provide the entertainment.
